Hi all parents,
Our child is going to Reception in 2016. Our first and closet school choice would be Alderbrook for state school.
I have read recently that the class is now 30. I think it was about 20-22 before. I am not sure when this got changed.
Also, looking at the percentage of non-native English speaker of the school, it is about 48% of the number of students overall.
I am not sure how number will turn out in Reception 2016.
I am a little worried that the combination of the size of the class and above STATS will also shift teacher(s) attention
to students who need help with language first to be able to do well in class for other subjects. This is understandble as these students might need extra help from teacher(s) in the classroom.
Do you have any good/bad feedback you can give with the class of 30 students or Alderbrook in general? We are going to school visit next week.
Our child has not yet been accepted by any private school but we would prefer a state school over private.
Your valuable feedback will help us make a decision which could be very soon if we get positive answer from any private school.
Thank you in advance
